Subhadra in front of damaged Nuwakot Center

For Nepali villagers like 86-year-old Subhadra, the long journey has just begun to rebuild a home, a life, and a community following the devastating earthquakes of the past month.


Subhadra Timilsina grew up in Kumari, a rural village in Nuwakot district, where most people were illiterate and lived below the poverty line. She wanted future generations to have the chance at an education that she never had.


When her husband passed away, Subhadra donated her most valuable asset in his honor - their family's land worth $25,000 – so that a READ Center could be built there.
